Welcome to Lynden Winter Ride's webpage.
Lynden Public School's Winter Ride program is open to all student's in the Lynden area (Lynden Public, Lynden Christian, Ebenezer, homeschool, etc.) in grades 5 through 12. The program offers a multi-week chaperoned bus ride up to the Mt. Baker Ski area and discounted lessons. Rental equipment is also available.
The planned dates for the 2013 program are:
Jan. 5, 12, 19, 26
Feb. 2, 9, and maybe 16*
*(The program has usually been 6 weeks, but the last 2 years we have had enough riders to be able to afford a 7th ride. We need at least 20+ full time riders to afford the 7th ride. I am confident we can get there again, but there is always a chance we will not.)
The prices for the bus ride are:
6+ ride package: $125
single ride: $25
(Make checks out to Lynden School District)
Season pass ages 7-12 - $210
Season pass ages 13-15 - $285

Forms & checks can be turned in at LCHS, LHS, or LMS offices.
The bus leaves Lynden High School at 7:00 a.m. sharp. Don't be late.
Try to be there by 6:45. The bus arrives at Mt. Baker usually about 8:30ish weather depending.
Students are to get back on the bus by 3:00 p.m.
The bus usually arrives back at LHS by about 5:00 p.m.
Many students have cell phones or can borrow a chaperone's so that they can call a parent as we get close to Lynden. That way they do not have to wait at the high school very long.
Lessons (which are a bargain by the way!) start at 9:00 am and usually end around 11:00 am. I highly recommend lessons, even for those who know how to ski or snowboard. There is always room for improvement!
Students in 5th grade ski or board for free at Mt. Baker! They will receive a free lift ticket by showing a valid student ID or other ID that shows their age. This year we are opening up the program to 5th graders but they must be accompanied by an adult. The bus ride price is the same as a single person though! So a six week ride package for $125 is good for the 5th grader and adult together!

We have one last special ride planned for Saturday, March 30! That is the day that Mt Baker has their amazing Easter Egg Hunt on the slopes. Thousands of egss are hidden on the slopes containing thousands in prizes.
The trip will be free to those of you who paid for the bus for the full season and only $10 for everyone else. For those who have not riden before, you will also need the two completed required forms below. We'll leave LHS at the same time and place. We hope to see you on the bus with us March 30.
